5 Security Things to Know for the Week of June 8

Like it or not, Monday is upon us. Here are five items making news that can help you kick off your work week in style - or at least a little more informed.

Response-ability: Organizations are investing more than they ever have in incident response - and it still might not be enough.

Mobile malfeasance: Mobile malware has been on the radar of security professionals for many years, but just how close are we to a tipping point?

How we got here: This in-depth Washington Post piece examines the origins of the internet and why it became fertile ground for attacks.

Gone phishing: Before they can steal data, attackers must gain access to the target system. One of the prime ways they do that is through phishing - and this method of intrusion is worsening to record levels, according to a new study.

The big freeze: Never mind credit monitoring. Investigative journalist Brian Krebs explains why placing "security freezes" on one's credit file may be the most effective way to prevent fraud if personal data has been stolen.

Bonus: And finally. For a laugh, check out this meme, which was taken from a developer-focused Twitter account, but can probably apply to anyone in the security trade. Do you recognize the movie?
